Barcelona Rock Orchestra (BRO) is a project that started in 2018. This project originated from the “Jove Orquestra de Cambra del Masnou” (JOCEM), founded in 2004 by the violinist Marc Ariño.

Over the past 14 years the JOCEM has given more than 100 concerts around Catalonia and the rest of Spain, interpreting a varied repertoire of both classical and modern music.

BRO offers a unique project in the ambit of orchestras performing rock music live in a very individual and powerful way. This is achieved by the unusual use of classical music instruments and great enthusiasm. Apart from being excellent classical music performers all the members of the BRO are experienced in the world of rock and are very familiar with this genre of music.In doing this, BRO offers a unique project in the ambit of orchestras performing rock music live in a very individual and powerful way.
